Forum: audio Subject: Trouble with audio quality

Greetings--

I'm having some difficulty with the audio quality of my mp3 uploads. It seems that they deteriorate in some manner. That is, when I stream or download the audio from my archive.org page, it is clearly of lower quality than the actual mp3 that I'd uploaded.

I am streaming and downloading the "VBR" mp3. And the mp3s that I loaded are 192 kbps.

Here are some example pages of mine, if that helps troubleshoot at all:

http://www.archive.org/details/HeyThanks
http://www.archive.org/details/ThisUnitIsMalfunctional

Is this expected functionality? If so, is there any way for me to ensure that the stream & download are of identical quality to the mp3 I'd loaded?

Thanks!

first, this situation seem very strange. 192 kbps files that you uploaded surely couldn't disappear by themselves. normally you would have to have your 192 kbps files + vbr, 64 kpbs and ogg.
(judging by filenames, you actually uploaded not 192 but VBRs or marked them as VBR in metadata. in this case, VBR files are EXACTLY those files that you uploaded.)
second, to ensure best quality, as far as i know, you would have to upload VBR files and disallow derivations (so the low quality streaming files wouldn't be generated).
